June/July Airwaves

The June/July issue of Airwaves, WPT’s member publication and program guide, highlights PBS Kids updates.

I didn’t have imaginary friends as a child, but I did have a furry green friend who lived in a garbage can, and even a big yellow-feathered friend who talked up a storm. Yes, I was an avid Sesame Street viewer. I lived and breathed the show, and – much to my family’s chagrin – refused to sing anything but “Come and pay (sic), everything’s a-OK,” morning, noon and night.

Luckily, the show I loved so much is alive and well today. And that’s not the only show PBS Kids has to offer. Today’s young minds have access to a plethora of educational and witty programs, from Peg + Cat to Dinosaur Train, and everything in between.

PBS and WPT understand the importance of children’s programming, and that’s why we make every effort to listen to viewer feedback. Recently, that feedback prompted a revamp of the PBS Kids schedule, and we’re excited to announce that the new and improved schedule debuts on June 2!

The new PBS Kids schedule delivers double the fun by offering back-to-back episodes of kids’ favorite shows, including Wild Kratts, Curious George, Dinosaur Train, Arthur and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. Starting every weekday at 6 a.m. and running until 5:30 p.m., the new schedule is bound to make kids love summer even more than they already do.

Sesame Street won’t be left out of these updates. Elmo, Cookie Monster and the other colorful characters will now greet viewers at 9 a.m. instead of 8 a.m. We’re sure that Oscar the Grouch will appreciate the extra beauty rest.

Be sure to tune into WPT to view these programs and more. And, don’t forget that you can stream these programs any time at PBSKids.org!
